Shortly after being exonerated in a sexual assault case from 10 years ago, linebacker Brian Banks expressed interest in trying out for the San Diego Chargers.

The team didn’t show any initial interest in the Southern California resident. However, U-T San Diego reported Wednesday, the Chargers have been in contact with Banks. No tryout has been scheduled, but the contact indicates that the team will consider looking at Banks.

ESPN’s Rick Reilly reported earlier Wednesday that the Chiefs called Banks about setting up a tryout. He has talked to several other teams and has a workout scheduled with the Seahawks next week.

Banks, now 26, was a highly prized USC recruit before he was convicted of sexual assault. He was recently exonerated.

Meanwhile, U-T San Diego reports that linebacker Larry English returned to organized team activities after suffering a minor groin injury.
